Need more input.

What caliber do you like? What size is your hands? What are you going to use the Glock for? Do you prefer full size, compact or sub-compact?

Have you held any of the Glock models yet, and which one do you feel more comfortable with?

Well if you really want advice, here's some.


Go to your gun store pistol display. Look down at the Glock models very closely. While you are intently looking at the Glock models go ahead and shift your vision over to where the Springfield Armory XD pistols are being displayed. Go ahead and purchase one of the XD pistols instead (say maybe a nice XD9).

When the whole transaction is over, you can laugh at yourself for ever wanting a Glock.

:D

If you are really set on a Glock, maybe you should purchase a Glock 17. The G17 is a great "all-around" Glock and has lots of aftermarket support. Just a thought.

i can definitely agree with that, cant go wrong with the glock 17 its a nice middle ground between the smaller glocks and the bigger ones like mine.

GLOCK 19.
+1

This is the middle-size 9mm, and probably one of the best overall/all-around pistols ever made. 15-round magazine capacity. Big enough to be a fun plinker, but small enough for daily conceal carry.

Good luck with your decision-making, and let us know which way you decide to go.

Glock 17, 19, & 26 (from top to bottom)

i'm a bit biased toward glock's , i find very greenish the idea of throwing'em up in the recycling drum once kb'ed.:D:p.lol...

seriously, the G22 is a great shooter and it sport more muscles but stay manageable easy and is the perfect in-between 9mm/.45 acp caliber of excellence .....

that said,i would get the 35 for range-only purpose.

get a bar-sto (no rush to...) if you practice a whole lot,and a trijicon dot , you'll congrat yourself then...

i love my third gen 22 in green/sand livery. found the new backstrap very good for me , better grip feel for me.

Everything he said, but replace Springfield with Smith, add a "&" sign, replace Armory with Wesson, XD with M&P, and 9 with 40. :D

I was hellbent on getting a Glock, then my firearms instructor got wind of what I wanted, took me to the range and had me shoot his buddies Glock, then his M&P. I love my M&P.

im a terrible shot with a pistol and I was able to do this my second time shooting my new glock.

the great thing about the glock compared to the xd (i cant attest to the MP) is that it isn't as top heavy and in my personal opinion the trigger is crisper which makes it easier to shoot accurately

I carry a glock 23 in .40 everywhere i go, its small enough to conceal effectivly and just big enough to get a good grip on for accuracy. Plus i can say that i have fired several thousdand rounds through it with out a malfunction, well other than bad ammo and the malfunction drills they made us do at the po-lice academy.

What range was the target engaged at?

You should be able to get good accuracy from the gun itself out to 25 yards and possibly beyond because of the 5 inch barrel.

I was also in your same situation a while back. I tried many pistols at the range; Berettas, SA-XD, Ruger, S&W, Kel-Tec, even a Hi Point. These were all very good guns, however, I kept coming back to Glocks. It was the one that felt better in my hands all the time. I also tried different Glocks, , 40-45 cal, but settled on a 9mm, (believe it or not, the recoil on the larger calibers was not that much different than on the 9mm).
I ended up with the Glock 19. I considered the Glock 17, but liked the size of the 19 better at my hand and for concealment.
:cool:

I was in the same predicament. I had my sights set on an M&P40 or a G22. Because I live in Colorado and work in California, I was able to research with many gun dealers to get an opinion on which one to choose. Obviously, the "which ever one feels better" came up. That is not what I wanted to know. To my amazement, there was not one dealer that chose the M&P over the Glock. There were even several dealers (in both states) that would stake their reputation on backing Glock.

Last weekend, I had an opportunity to shoot with a friend with a M&P40. After several times, back-and-forth and 500 rounds later, I knew I had made the right choice.

I heard from my friend on Tuesday. He is the proud owner of a G22 and his M&P is listed on an online gun auction.

Lump me in with the G19 crowd. 9mm, compact, concealable, ergonomic, I can't say enough about it really. The G19 was the last Glock pistol I got just last year, and after having several, and still having several, I can't believe I never had one until a year ago. If I had bought a G19 over ten years ago, I probably wouldn't have the Glock collection I have today.

For those about to Glock, I salute you. Proud owner of a Mod. 22 and buying a Mod 21 because eyes don't have a 45. Almost bought a 1911 last week and then I picked up the Mod. 21 again.

I understand that Springfield really stands behind their firearms with good customer service when they break. I don't need a firearms that is prone to failure. Besides, this is a Glock forum, it's Glock or not. Hunter G. Joe
